Luxury homes

Since its development in 1985, the community has expanded and is now home to 6,000 properties located in six gated communities. These consist of a mix of single-family homes, townhouses, and condos. The homes boast up-to-date facilities and appliances, with features such as fireplaces, pools, manicured gardenscapes, and long driveways. Open-concept floor plans dominate, along with high ceilings, recessed lighting, and walk-in closets. Properties range from 1,200 square feet to over 5,000 square feet, and there’s sure to be one to your liking.

Exclusive lifestyle

Living in PGA West can be low maintenance, thanks to a homeowners’ association that makes sure common areas are well kept. Regular upkeep and security are already taken care of. Thus, fewer chores mean more time to enjoy what the golf club and clubhouse have to offer. The clubhouse boasts tennis courts, a fitness center, and fine dining experiences that are exclusive to members. Membership in the club also grants you access to social events. While you don’t have to be a homeowner to become a member, living in close proximity to these perks is a perk in itself.

World-class golf courses

PGA West is home to not one, not two, but nine golf courses. Players can enjoy picturesque oases or desert views as they walk the greens.  All five resort courses and four private courses were designed by legends Pete Dye, Greg Norman, and Arnold Palmer. If you want to learn how to play golf, the club offers clinics.

Here’s what one client said about working with me:

“I made a trip to La Quinta to find a condo for personal seasonal use and investment purposes. Kathleen was very patient and knowledgeable. She must have shown me 30 properties. We found the right one and made a deal that we were all happy with. Would use Kathleen again if I ever trade or add properties.” – Tommy Popes
